Monopoly Casino Review
Monopoly is one of the world's most well known board games. The game has multiple versions including versions for Star Wars, Game Of Thrones, Liverpool FC, Avengers and Friends. However the property trading game has also established itself as a firm favourite as an online gambling brand. It features in a number of different slots and instant win games whilst more recently Evolution Gaming launched a live casino version of Monopoly. There's also a casino brand on the Gamesys platform and boasts "an exclusive range of themed casino and slot games". But does Monopoly Casino offer players anything new?
The Monopoly Casino site is simply designed and follows the same format as other brands that use the Gamesys platform. Like Rainbow Riches Casino there's little here that initially links you to the brand. This is most likely because UKGC rules frown upon cartoon characters and Mr Moneybags, the Monopoly guy, may be seen as being too child friendly. Overall the design isn't that exciting however the site has been designed for mobile, tablet and desktop which is good. No app is needed to play on Apple and Android devices.
Monopoly Casino Welcome Offer
New players to Monopoly Casino are welcomed with the standard Gamesys offer. Register, login, deposit and wager a minimum of £10 to receive either 30 free spins on Monopoly Paradise Mansion or £50 in free bingo tickets. Note that the bingo tickets can be played on any games except for Session Bingo. Any wins from these spins or free tickets are paid out in cash. Like Jackpotjoy, Heart Bingo and Virgin Games this casino is a wager free casino so no wagering terms apply.
As you'd expected Monopoly slots and games take front and centre at this casino. There are in fact 17 variations of the game that can be found under "Monopoly Games". The variations include Epic II, 250K, Bank It, Big Even, Bring The House Down, Game Show Jackpots, City Spins and Monopoly Live. These are joined by a free game called Free Parking. All players that have deposited at least £10 can play this daily free game once a day for the chance to win spins and cash prizes. At the end of each month you also have an extra opportunity to win free spins.
Monopoly Casino Promotions
Joining the titular selection are other games from providers such as Eyecon Games, Net Entertainment and Gamesys. Popular games include Around The Reels In 80 Wilds, Bonanza Megaways, Epic Monopoly II, Friends, Fishin Frenzy, Paper Wins, Mystery Reels and Starburst. These are joined by Community Jackpots which give you the chance to win one of four jackpots on any slot at any time. Note that these jackpots are shared with Star Spins. Additionally you can enjoy live casino, table games such as roulette, and online bingo. The bingo rooms such as Superlinks and The Crystal Maze Bingo are shared with other brands on the Gamesys platform.
Promotions on Monopoly Casino are limited. There's the daily free game as mentioned above as well as the welcome offer. After that there are occasional chances to grab a bonus or participate in poker tournaments. Given that Monopoly Casino is closely aligned with Star Spins we expect that promotions do take place. This means players will be able to win Box Bonanza Games in promotions. This is the Gamesys method for awarding bonuses but they're paid as a cash prize so no wagering terms apply.
We quite like the idea of Monopoly Casino. This popular and well loved game seems to be the perfect foil for a brand. Looking at Jackpot and Star Spins we did find that all share pretty much the same Monopoly titles as Monopoly Casino. We believe that the only exclusive game is Roulette Hot Properties. Because of this it does negate the value of the brand's claim that is boasts an "exclusive range of themed games". Monopoly Slingo, which is one of the better versions of Slingo, is one obvious omission from the roster.
And this is the problem with Monopoly Casino. It's just a rebrand of Star Spins but it's a rebrand that offers less to the player. We like the idea that the community jackpots have been rebranded Community Chest Jackpots but is that enough? We're not so sure! Promotions are better in our view at Star Spins and and Jackpotjoy. We do like the Gamesys platform and the no wagering element is attractive, but like sister brand Rainbow Riches, Monopoly Casino needs to do more to be exclusive.
